Potential circular economy impact

By upcycling plastic bottles, this solution reduces the volume of plastic in recycling facilities or landfill. This drives down energy consumption and CO2 emissions. PlastiKetic’s work also reduces the need for virgin materials to make furniture.

All products are designed, manufactured and produced in France. This supports product traceability.
